President Trump says that the idea of running for Congress is “very interesting.” In an interview with radio host Wayne Allyn Root, the host suggested that President Trump try to get elected to the House of Representatives in his home state of Florida — then become Speaker if Republicans take control of the House.
“Why not, instead of waiting for 2024, and I’m hoping you’ll run in 2024, but why not run in 2022 for the United States Congress? A House seat in Florida. Win big. Lead us to a dramatic landslide victory. Take the House by 50 seats,” Root says, adding that Trump could then “wipe” Biden out. “Then you become the Speaker of the House, lead the impeachment of Biden and start criminal investigations against Biden. You’ll wipe him out for this last two years.”
“That’s so interesting,” President Trump replied. “You know, It’s very interesting.” He told Root that others have suggested a Senate run, “but you know what, your idea might be better.”
Former Trump strategist Steve Bannon has also suggested that Trump run for Congress. “We totally get rid of Nancy Pelosi, and the first act of President Trump as Speaker [of the House] will be to impeach Joe Biden for his illegitimate activities of stealing the presidency,” Bannon told a group of Republicans in August 2016.
A Trump Congressional run could be very successful in Florida, but whether or not we will take back control of the House depends entirely on American voters. And, of course, the President would need to want to make numerous sacrifices once again to serve the American people. It’s a heavy decision. So be sure, whether he runs or not, to vote straight Red in the 2022 election. It’s time to get America back on track.
